Recent Ontario research has shown a strong interaction between fungicides and increased nitrogen rates to increase yield. However, all this research was performed on soft winter wheat (SRW, SWW). Hard red winter wheat (HRW) is generally lower yielding than soft wheat, so it is unknown if HRW will respond as positively. This research also found a significant increase in protein levels, something desperately needed in HRW. This trial will determine the yield and protein potential for Ontario HRW, and what the economic implications might be.
